Deputies were dispatched to the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando on Sunday after an unresponsive male was discovered in a hotel room, according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office in Florida.
“The man’s name was Robert Saget, and he was pronounced dead at the spot.”. In this case, detectives uncovered no evidence of foul play or drug use “According to the sheriff’s office. Saget was on the road and had just finished a gig near Jacksonville the day before.
Throughout the 1990s, Saget was a regular on American television as Danny Tanner’s father on Full House and as the host of America’s Funniest Home Videos.
From 2005 to 2014, he was the narrator on How I Met Your Mother, and between 2016 to 2020, he returned his Danny Tanner role on the Netflix spinoff Fuller House. In one-time or recurring appearances in TV shows and movies, Saget frequently played himself or parodies of himself.
Saget’s co-stars and friends have paid tribute to him on social media.
“I’m completely shattered. I’m really disappointed in myself. I’m stunned. He is the only friend I will ever have. Bobby, I truly adore you “Full House co-star John Stamos composed the piece.
Saget was a personal buddy, according to TV producer Norman Lear “He was both a lovely and a hilarious person. He was also, in my opinion, amusing.”
“I’m at a loss for words when it comes to Bob Saget. I adored him and consider myself extremely fortunate to have worked with someone as witty, soulful, and compassionate as him “Craig Thomas, co-creator of How I Met Your Mother, stated as much.
Saget has worked as a director, with his most well-known film being the cult classic Dirty Work, starring Norm MacDonald, released in 1998.
His on-stage presence was the polar opposite of his stand-up comedy.
Saget was also a stand-up comedian, beginning at the age of 17, according to his 2014 biography Dirty Daddy. His jokes were known to be filthy, in stark contrast to his character’s caring and wholesome father character on Full House.
Throughout my career, I’ve had the good fortune of being able to work in a wide range of creative realms,” he wrote. “By day, I’ve worked on some of the most family-friendly television you can imagine. Then I’ve gone onstage in L.A. comedy clubs, frequently on the same day, and whirled off with adolescent joy about my grandmother’s projectile diarrhoea.”
Saget’s comedy album That’s What I’m Talkin’ About received a Grammy nomination in 2014.
Saget was also an advocate for persons suffering from scleroderma, an autoimmune condition that affects the skin. Gay Saget, his sister, died of the condition when she was in her forties.
Saget wrote in his memoir that humour had helped him cope with sorrow. In the book’s introduction, he said something that could have been his leaving words.
“The purpose of living a full life is to learn something new along the way,” he wrote. “I’m not even halfway through, but I’ve already had some fantastic adventures. I’ve met and worked with some incredible people, lived, loved, and cried… and I’ve always done things my way.”
